Album Notes
Straight Light (SL) was a progressive rock band formed in the Kalamazoo-Grand Rapids, Michigan area in 1973. The band was together in various versions until one month shy of 1980. In 2007, founding members Bart Garratt and Brent McDonald discussed reforming the band as a song writing experiment. "The idea was to accomplish what we couldn't decades ago--namely, the joy of making music without record company or management intervention dictating what's acceptable for the masses."

The following six year writing collaboration produced over 120 minutes of music. Running time was narrowed to 55 minutes, and nine songs were chosen. The material was then recorded along with SL core band mates and good pals. Their time, ideas and belief in this, helped make it a reality.

We hope anyone familiar with the band isn't disappointed, as there’s no “old familiar” or nostalgia here. It’s all new music. Our objective wasn't to delve thirty years in the past. Instead, we set out to write and record new but similar material and present it as we would today.

We've worked hard to make this an album you'll want to listen to repeatedly. Each song is different one to the next., yet somehow together they tell one story. We hope you enjoy it!
